Official start of the Dog Walk

You will set off at 11:00am for a relaxed 4km walk that will take you along the Geelong Waterfront and loop back to your original starting point at the Eastern Park BBQ Area. 

If required there will be a staggered start to help reduce congestion, ensure smoother traffic flow, and can minimize potential conflicts between dogs. 

Group sizes will be based on our total number of participants, with comfortable group sizes decided on the day. Depending on group sizes we will have 5 to 10 minute intervals.
